The GREAT Project was a partnership of eleven local and national specialist organisations and charities to support families into Employment, Education and Training.
Working together as the GREAT Project meant they could offer a range of courses, and support services tailored to an individuals needs and aspirations.
The organisations and charities involved in delivering the GREAT Project were:
Voluntary Action LeicesterShire
Business in the Community
Leicestershire County Council
Healthy Working Futures
Pop up Nurseries
Parents Learning Alliance
Personal Development Point
Optima UK Ltd
At the Getting Ready for Employment and Training (GREAT) Project, the project supported families to take steps towards employment.
Their purpose was to support families overcome challenges and barriers that have prevented them from finding a job or seeking further education.
Everyone enrolled on the GREAT Project was assigned a Employment Support Officer who supported them throughout their journey and helped them to achieve their goals.
